Important CentralAlliance Merger Information

​While the actual merger between CentralAlliance and CoVantage will occur on January 1, 2019, some work needs to be done to bring the two credit unions together. Therefore, we will complete the merger by converting CACU's records into the CoVantage computer system on January 31, 2019. After this is completed, you will have full and convenient access to CoVantage's products and services.​

To help make this transition as smooth as possible, you will receive important emails and other mailings. Please review this information carefully for an overview of what’s happening, when it’s happening and any actions you may need to take.
